Formatted Abstract/Summary
Over the last ten years the author has seen many juvenile free-living galahs (Eolophus roseicapillus)
presented by wildlife carers in south-east Queensland for severe weight loss and weakness associated
with diarrhoea. Despite supportive care, most of the birds died. Over the last two years, an
investigation into the cause of this syndrome identified two suspect pathogens: Spironucleus spp and
Macrorhabdus ornithogaster. This is the first report of these pathogens in free-living galahs in southeast
Queensland.
